Hello Monday! You’ve been pretty good to me so far so I’m thankful! The weekend also included some fun things. We got to go out on a date on Friday night and eat delicious food! I really like going out to eat and spending time alone with the husband. Eating and traveling are top priorities in our “fun budget” category! It’ll be so fun when Asher can enjoy these things more too!
Speaking of budgets…we spent a bit of time going over our budget this weekend and working hard to make some of our goals happen. I’m always trying to tow the line between going extreme and being realistic. There’s such a balance between living life and being responsible. If I could chuck responsibility out the window, I’d be jumping on planes and traveling a lot while also eating really well and there’d be a lot of dessert. Instead, we’re focusing on enjoying life and putting a lot toward my last graduate school loans. Any budget tips for me?
Saturday was filled with worship practice, prepping for Sunday, and time with family to celebrate a birthday. Sunday was a bit quieter, which I was so thankful for then. Plus, we got a movie and snagged a pizza deal from Papa John’s. I am in love with their garlic dipping sauce.
Other things that I “found” recently include….
- This verse stuck out: He will bring you quietness with His love. Zephaniah 3:17
- She Reads Truth starts their new reading plan called “Open Your Bible.” I jumped on board this morning!
- WestBow Press is accepting manuscripts for a New Look Writing Contest.
- Cool Running has some fun speed work plans. I’m hoping to improve my 5k time this fall!
Oh and lastly…there’s these two who keep making us smile, laugh, and love life even more.
